  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. My Mom

    I hope she goes to a doctor soon! Blood is never a good sign and she should be checked for damage to her intestine if not for colon cancer. Good luck!
  3. My BF can drink beer on occation and he is a Celiac. However, he does notice a small bit of a reaction. It all depends on the sensitivity. I would suggest she lay off the beer, as mentioned before. Even if it doesn't effect her, if it builds up in her system she could be feeling it later. It's good you worry about her but it's her choice.
  4. Communion Question

    I am Catholic and not a Celiac. . however, at my church we do not dip the wafer into the wine (only the Eucharistic Ministers actually drink the wine). Perhaps you could just take a gluten-free wafer and not the wine if you think it might cause you pain and harm. You could always talk to your priest about it, I'm sure he would better be able to take into consideration your situation and the chuch. Maybe he can accomidate you (and maybe others). If all else fails, you could try to be the first one up there everytime so no other wafer has touched the wine.
  5. Remember to check spices and seasons and read labes for "natural and artifical seasoning" which can contain all that stuff you don't want to eat.
  6. I know my BF missed pizzia and Olive Garden bread sticks. . . If there was a pill my consern would be heath before luxury. If a pill a day could help relieve symptoms and help prevent/stop bodily damage it would be a worthwhile investment even if it wasn't a "magic cure". So much like insulin. . .it doesn't mean you can eat all the sugar you want but it makes living with it a ton easier.
  7. I would suggest getting checked by a gyno. It could be a yeast infection or something unrelated directly to a gluten-free lifestyle.
  8. Panda Express

    Steamed rice has gluten? Maybe they use something with it? My BF never had problems eating Chineese but he is not super-duper sensitive. He can normally eat soy and can have chicken w/ veggies. I would think they would be conserned with cross-contamination. . probably don't want you to sue if something goes wrong. Food alleriges are so icky.
  9. Celiac Specialites

    I found http://www.gluten free.com/ is a good resource too. Thanks for the link!
  10. GF Girlfriend

    Hey all! I am in the same boat, my boyfriend is gluten-free and it's tough to learn to deal with his diet. I am able to eat anything (except chocolate) and it slips my mind when we go out. I know my BF was depressed when the doc pronounced him a Celiac even though he sort of knew a few years ago. Anyhow, if your sig other is a celiac, they need to start the diet right away. Dealing with the consquences is not nice or pretty. Plus, it can eat away at the stomach and intestine lining causing a lifetime of problems. It's a hard ajustment, but, there are lots of food ok to eat out there. Mexian food is good. You can still make stirfries and have any meat and veggy. It's like a forced Aktins diet. Anyhow, if anyone has a loved one who is gluten-free, feel free to message me.
  11. Hard Time Coping

    You wouldn't want to deprive those 7 of a good, long life on your part. If possible, unless someone mentioned this and I missed it, try to spend a little time each week planning out your meals so you know. If you use gluten-free mixes for cookies and bread. . or a bake mix, mix up a big batch of it so it is always on hand if you need to make something quickly. You can store it in ziplock bags. I suggest shopping for food at the Gluten-Free Pantry <http://www.gluten free.com/> which delivers food to your door. We have tried the pizza and coffee cake and you would NEVER know the diffence between it and food with gluten in it. Don't give up!
  12. Coping With Mistakes

    Waya (my BF) gets very bad stomach pains, dizziness, diarrhea and mood swings and tends to have them for a few days at varying degrees. He is very careful about what he eats (even things that say
  13. Hi. My BF is a celiac and was dignoised about two years ago though he had it all his life. I have been trying to find out as much as possible about it to help make his life eaiser. He knows what to eat and not to eat but things still happen and mistakes happen. I know there is no treatment other than a gluten-free diet but surely someone somewhere found someway to help cope with the mistakes. While nothing is proven, does anyone know anything that can ease the pain and help it move through the system faster? He has found a few cups of yerbal mate tea helps to ease some of the symptons. Anyone have any other suggestions?
